Tightrope Stepladder is a new challenge devised to test
the skill and daring of the most skillful and the most
foolhardy of all tightrope walkers.
It consists of a series of parallel tightropes that span a
gap, but each rope is raised slightly higher than the
preceeding one to form an ascending
This means that the walker starts off a low level but
must step across to the next parallel wire/rope after
they have travelled a few steps forward.
Each step brings them unto a rope placed at a slightly
higher level than the previous one. After another few
steps, they move across to the next rope and continue in
this manner until they have traversed the entire gap,
arriving at the other side on the highest of the ropes.
Juggling or fire eating while negotiating the Tightrope
Stepladder wins extra kudos. (and probably an even
swifter descent under the full effect of gravity)
